take that, which is science, and apply it to the art of teaching, and where the right balance is. the concern to often is where you divide metrics on the measurement site, the more teaching itself will be focused on metrics. i think really it comes down to figuring out what happens in that classroom, and that interaction between a teacher and a student. there are all sorts of technologies that improve that interaction. you want that teacher pay attention, and you want that teacher to be able to subscribe to a bigger community of teachers and practitioners. >> what is the priority for the pearson foundation? >> we are really interested in helping teachers and celebrating teachers. to the degree we can, working with other organizations, to get the word out about the practices, both in their classrooms and in their profession. >> some of the materials are available through you worldwide. >> pearson has a big investment in supporting teachers. we try to connect people, organizations like teachers unions, ministries of education, nonprofits, to see if we can get a greater consensus of

science and technology, would take us so far away from what we need, i wish president obama had the revenues to do more, but it is the republican side that is blocking that because that party has one idea only. and that is to cut taxes for the rich. we have this multi-brazilian there running for office. his money is in the cayman island. he pays 13% in taxes. he says the most important thing is to cut the tax rates at the top for the. it is mind-boggling that we have this kind of blatant candidacy. people are hurting, people are upset. that is why this weirdness even has a choice. but it would take as exactly in the wrong direction. president obama could have done more and would have done more if the republican opposition had not blocked the end of the bush era tax cuts for the rich, for example. so romney is in quite a position to be blaming president obama for that when it is exactly this side that has made the kind of recovery we need so fleeting and evanescent. we need a strong recovery, but the policies he is recommending would be the opposite of what would get us there. tavis:

in the last three decades. a report by the australian institute of marine science says the number of reefs has dropped from 100 to 47. since 1985. the scientists identified two main causes of coral decline. the crown of thorn star fish is growing rapidly in number. the fish feed on the coral. and ocean warming is bleaching the coral. the scientists say this prevents the reef from recovering after cyclone damage. they worn coral cover could halve again by the end of the next decade if current trends continue. >> we believe that if we can take action on one of the things we can directly control, the crown of thorn starfish, it may leave the reef in a position where it can better withstand some of these climatic impacts. >> the reef extends more than 2,000 kilometers off the coast of northeastern australia. >>> officials and locals in india pulled together to pull one endangered species from the mud. they spent ten hours digging an indian rhinoceros from a swamp in the northeastern state. about 2,300 rhinos live in the national park, two-thirds of the world's population of the endang
